I'm using FreeBSD 4.6-STABLE, and am trying to install snort 1.8.6 from
source. I built with mysql like this:
./configure -with-mysql=/usr/local/libexec
MySQL is installed and working, I use it often. When I try to start
snort like this:
# snort
I get the following error:
Log directory = /var/log/snort

 Check your configuration file to be sure you did not mis-spell "mysql".
 If you did not, you will need to reconfigure and recompile ensuring
 you have set the correct options to the configure script. Type 
 "./configure --help" to see options for the configure script.
Fatal Error, Quitting..
I have tried rebuilding snort, always using the mysql flag for the
configure, but I get the same error. After three builds, I attempted to
use the previous version 1.8.5, and I get the same error. My snort.conf
is configured with most the defaults, but with MY network information
and the output plugin set up for mysql.
Anyone have some ideas?
